The Lok Sabha at this time handed a invoice which, if it turns into legislation, will allow states and Union Territories to draw up their own list of different backward communities (OBCs). These lists could be completely different from the Central authorities’s. The structure modification invoice was cleared with 385 votes for and none in opposition to it.
The passing of the invoice comes amid murmurs from some states, like Bihar, of their own caste-based surveys given the Central authorities’s stand that solely Scheduled Castes and Tribes, none different, might be enumerated in Census 2021.
